“Decorate Your Soul”

This is a poem I found one night:

“After a while you learn,

The subtle difference between

Holding a hand and chaining a soul,

And you learn,

That love doesn’t mean leaning,

And company doesn’t mean security,

And you begin to learn,

That kisses aren’t contracts,

And presents aren’t promises.

And you begin to accept your defeats,

With your head up.

And your eyes ahead,

With the grace of a woman,

Not the grief of a child.

And you learn to build all of your roads

On today, because tomorrow’s ground

Is too uncertain for plans,

And futures have a way of

Falling down mid-flight.

After a while you learn that,

Even sunshine burns

If you get too much.

So you plant your own garden,

And decorate your own soul,

Instead of waiting for someone

To bring you flowers.

And you learn and you learn…

With every goodbye you learn.”
